Plan ahead now for your Labor Day Weekend with events in and around West Chester. Stay in town for downtown festivals and shopping, or relax at your own resort-style pool at Jefferson at Westtown. You can also head just minutes from your town to wine tastings and fireworks.
- Start celebrating Labor Day Weekend earlier at Swingin’ Summer Thursdays in Downtown West Chester. The last night of the series, September 1, will feature live, world fusion music from Philadephia-based Animus. The free, World Night-themed street festival will also offer local food, performers and more.
- Shop Labor Day Weekend deals and special store events at the Downtown West Chester First Fridays. Browse art at Visual Expansion Gallery with wine, chocolate and refreshments and a meet and greet with local artist John Hannafin. Shop expanded hours Friday evening with The 5 Senses store, and see exhibits from the Chester County Historical Society’s free hours on Friday.
- On September 3, see the last show in the Fireworks & Fountains series at Longwood Gardens. At 8:15 p.m., the “Summer Pops”-themed show will feature classic American music from Leroy Anderson to the dancing fountains and exploding fireworks at the Gardens. Learn more about the fun activities at Longwood Gardens.
- Head to Chadds Ford for Labor Day Weekend wine tastings September 3-5. The small festival at the winery will feature live music, green space for outdoor picnics and wine tastings for $10 per adult.
